Shinedown is currently on the Carnival of Madness Tour with Papa Roach and others, but what are the band's plans when the tour is over?

"We're going to go home," guitarist Zach Myers said. "Brent [Smith, singer] has to rest his voice. He's not allowed to talk during the day right now."

Rumors have also circulated about Shinedown recording a collection of cover songs.

"Originally we were just going to release it on YouTube, which you don't need permission for, obviously, because people do covers on YouTube every day," Myers said. "But I believe fans really want it as a download. Now we're going to release it as an EP with just Brent and I. I believe it will come out during the holidays."
